Scholarships

Some parents believe they can’t afford to send their child to college. Although college can be costly there are ways for students to obtain financial assistance. GEAR UP Mississippi and the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning have established a scholarship fund for eligible GEAR UP Mississippi students. The number of awards will be based upon the availability of funds and the number of eligible applicants. Awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis; however, priority consideration will be given to all students who demonstrate the greatest financial need.  More specific information about the GEAR UP Mississippi scholarship will be available on this page in the very near future.
